CRYSTAL Palace boss Ian Holloway says he and co-chairman Steve Parish will be looking to "finalise" new arrivals today after admitting a number of deals broke down last week. The Eagles manager, who fielded a trialist at Crawley Town on Saturday, believed to be Bolton Wanderers target Jeremy Bokila, admits his side could struggle if they don't get the further quality required to stay in the Premier League. "There are lots of deals we're trying to do and they all break down for all sorts of ridiculous reasons," said Holloway. "Unfortunately, that's not my job, I can just identify players, and why they break down is not common knowledge and it's so easy for deals to break down. "My job is to try and find people who can help my squad this season, and that's what I'm doing.SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO "It's all about getting together and I need to get some players in. The chairman and I have got to sit down on Monday and try to finalise some of these deals or move on, because we are playing catch-up. "I've got to name a 25-man squad, we started later than everybody else. We've lost two of our main team that actually got us there in the first place. "Unfortunately, we're at the standard that is pretty relentless, so I'm trying to get ready for it and so is everybody at Palace, trying to get the ground ready. "We've bought the training ground as well, so we've had a lot on our plate and just try to settle down. "We had a fella turn up on the morning (before Crawley Town) for us to look at, so that's where we are at the moment. "I apologised to him for putting him on in the second half for such a young team, who had to witness the first team do not what I wanted. "He thought he was signing for someone else yesterday (Friday). "He's ended up playing for us – all the plans we've had, my lads see someone else coming here and they think who he is, and it's all just uncertainty. "If I'm totally honest, I'm ready to expect this and until I've dotted the i's and crossed the t's, we are going to be struggling."WATCH THE VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH HOLLOWAY HERE
